On a Serious Note

I meant to do this yesterday, but I forgot.  So I am going to do it now before I forget.

Jamey and his partner at work, Hal, had a client die on Monday.  She went to the hospital and had to have a CT Scan.  She had a reaction to the CT dye and they couldn't save her.  It's awful. 

I have the same allergy.  It's a severe one.  Some people know because they have an allergy to shellfish, but not everyone (including myself ) does.  The only way they find out is when the dye is injected.  And then you can be in very serious trouble very quickly.  I found out about my allergy when I had a CT scan back when I was about 16 or 17.  So why am I telling you all this?

Because I have been a fool.  I should have a medical alert ID on me at all times.  But I've never gotten one.  And so if any of you have allergies that you know about and you don't wear one of those tags, please get one.  I will include links to three places.  I just ordered mine from Road ID.  Thanks folks.
